Slab City Library

One of the more incongruous features of Slab City is a 24-hour free library. No cards, no fines, although I think most patrons don’t abuse the privilege. It is located in a building made of recycled materials. The roof is well-ventilated, giving a lot of fresh air, but not a lot of protection from the ocassional shower. Cleaning is low on the list of priorities:

An iMac was hiding between a post and the trunk of a live tree, and I found the library cat eager to interact with patrons:

There was even a “dog’s only” section:

That looks like something that would be fun to build. A real public library. I'd have to make it a little more weather proof to be pleased with it.

This place wouldn't last a month in Minnesota.
